Inspired by over 500 letters from current and former residents, the Tamaqua Community Arts Center partners with local businesses, churches, and community groups to transform one mile of the borough’s streets. Along the route, audiences will experience local sights, sounds, and tastes, and explore the love/hate relationship Tamaqua has with itself. Join us for this immersive multimedia walking experience that will leave you seeing Tamaqua in a new light!
